Note: Liberated Christians is a primarily about heterosexual relationships. While we are supportive of all sexual orientations, the leaders do not have the resources to assist them in their special issues. Thus, our Fellowship groups are not appropriate for gays/lesbians. However, individually Dave (an extreme heterosexual - Kinsey Scale= 0) has done extensive biblical research and has been active supporting biblical homosexuality for many years. However, there is no "official" stand as an organization on homosexuality other than general support.

GAYS SEEK EQUAL NOT "SPECIAL" RIGHTS

Some think gays have equal rights???
Where shall I start? Let's see....

1) Gays can't get insurance or benefits for their spouses.
2) Gays still risk losing their jobs if "outed".
3) Gays are still persecuted by the police.
4) Gay bashings still happen daily.
5) Gay marriages are not recognized by the state.
6) Gays are still denied adoption rights.

Heterosexuals can visit their critically injured partners in the emergency room and ICU...homosexuals can't.

Heterosexuals can inherit from their partners without expecting a raft of legal shit from their partner's parents...homosexuals can't.

I could go on, but if your mind is already closed, why should I bother?

Gays are not asking for "special rights". This is a lie promulgated by the religious right, because they know that they can't win this argument by arguing against equal treatment. It goes contrary to the basic values of fairness held by most Americans (of whom 85% oppose discrimination against gays). Instead, they've invented this insipid and wholly false bogeyman of "special rights", attempting to hoodwink the voting public. In a few cases they've actually succeeded (a sad testimony to the gullibility of many people).

But this idea of "special rights" has NOTHING to do with reality. Laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation don't just protect gays, they protect EVERYONE, regardless of sexual orientation. If a hetersexual was ever to be fired because of his sexual orientation (an unlikely scenario), he could use this law to sue (and in fact such a case did occur in California. The heterosexual plaintiffs won).
